Delivery of Digital Literacy Training to Government Officials, Disabled People’s Organisations, and ACCESS Implementing Partners

In order to prevent the spread of COVID-19, ways of working have shifted in Cambodia to online work, training, and activities. Therefore, Information and Communications Technology (ICT) literacy and tools are crucial in order to adapt and successfully undertake this new way of work.

From April 8th-9th 2021, with the support of the Government of Australia-funded Australia-Cambodia Cooperation for Equitable Sustainable Services (ACCESS) Program, the Agile Development Group organised an online training on Digital Literacy. The overall objective of the training was to provide basic knowledge on the available digital tools for working remotely including Zoom and Google Suite in which participants can work effectively and collaboratively with other partners in the new context of working online.

A total of 42 individuals from the Ministry of Social Affairs, Veterans and Youth Rehabilitation, Disability Action Council, Persons with Disabilities Foundation, Provincial Department of Social, Veteran and Youth Rehabilitation in Kampong Cham, Kampong Speu and Siem Reap, and representatives from Disabled People’s Organisations and ACCESS Implementing Partners attended the training and provided positive feedback. For example, 95.83% of the participants liked the training and 83.33% said that the curriculum met their expectations. About 60% said that lessons are really useful for their needs in implementing their work while about 40% said it is useful.
